Hooray, 'Safe Harbour' comes out as an e-book
Delighted to say Xcite have accepted 'Safe Harbour' as an e-book! Here's the cover. I loved writing this one as it's set near the sea in a little English town with a small sandy beach and a couple of lively restaurants down near the ancient harbour. One of these days, I'll post a photo of the restaurant that was the inspiration although I've never actually eaten there (just realised that and will have to remedy it soon - a tough job but someone's got to do it).
It's my second book set by the sea, 'The Sanctuary' being the other one. Many people are drawn to our wonderful coastline for different reasons. I think for me, being a profoundly city girl having been born and brought up in London, our trips to the Isle of Wight were such a wonderful change they felt magical. Sandown on the island has the most superb sandy beach and shallow pools ideal for trawling with bucket and spade, with tiny white crabs. Seaview has the most wonderful rock pools for children where we once encountered a lobster who had been stranded in one of them and I remember being amazed that it was blue. They only go bright pink when cooked! I absolutely love the sea and my dream would be to live near it. One day.... one day......
